Research interests

I am a Senior Lecturer in Sociology. Prior to (re)-joining the Sociology department as an LKAS Research Fellow in 2013, I have held an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, LSBU, Loondon (2012), and worked as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow across the subject areas of Sociology and Central and East European Studies (2007-11).

My current research focuses on the substantive topics of migration and sexualities.

  • I am interested in migrants’ experiences of settlement and belonging, and how they relate to integration policies and broader political discourses on migration. I am particularly interested in the role that language plays in migrants’ social networks and experiences of settlement. I am currently working on the BA funded project ‘Language learning and migrant “integration” in Scotland’ (2019-22), which explores provision of both formal and informal opportunities for language learning in the context of major changes for the ESOL sector, and considers the perspectives of learners, teachers, practitioners and policy-makers.
  • Queer migration is one of my core research interests. I have led the ESRC-funded project 'Intimate migrations: lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender migrants in Scotland' (2015-17). The project foregrounds the experiences of queer migrants within a broader labour migration from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union to Scotland. Adopting an intersectional approach, the project explored decisions to migrate, experiences of settlement and the development of migrants' social networks. The project led to two spin-offs:
    • The project ‘Developing engagement on LGBT and migrant equalities’, which resulted in the co-production of two sets of educational materials: one for the ESOL classroom, and the other for youth and community groups.
    • An evaluation of how the ESOL material was used by teachers and received by learners.
  • I have a long-standing interest in queer lives and sexual politics in Russia, the Former Soviet Union and post-socialist Eastern Europe. Work in this area includes:
    • Ethnographic work on the everyday lives of lesbian and bisexual women in contemporary urban Russia, and a follow-up oral history project on ‘lesbian’ existence under state socialism in Soviet Russia. These form the basis of the monograph ‘Lesbian lives in Soviet and post-Soviet Russia: post/socialism and gendered sexualities’ (Palgrave, 2015).
    • Co-editing ‘ Sexual and Gender Dissent in the USSR and in the post-Soviet space’, a special issue of Cahiers du Monde Russe (2021). The collection includes contributions from scholars from the post-Soviet region and beyond, and explores queer lives in different parts of the (former) Soviet Union.
    • Work exploring sexuality and gender, nationalism, citizenship and human rights. This includes the edited collection Sexuality, Citizenship and Belonging: Trans-National and Intersectional Perspectives (2016), as well as publications empirically grounded in research on the LGBT community in Russia (e.g. an article in Slavic Review 72(3), 2013 on Pride marches in Moscow, and a book chapter on sexual citizenship and the ‘anti-gender’ backlash in Russia)
